Police are searching for a suspect who shot up a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee, killing three people and wounding four others.

The gunman, who entered the establishment nude except for a green jacket (which he later shed), opened fire on Waffle House patrons at around 3:25 a.m. (local time), authorities said. A customer was able to wrestle the weapon away from the shooter, causing the man to flee the scene.
